hey, i'm candice


I'm a writer with a BA in linguistics & drama and a MA in contemporary literature & poetry. I love the moon (I'm the "look at the moon!" friend) and I also love houseplants. I also enjoy reading, writing, cats, painting, hot chocolates & I can't choose my favourite season but it's definitely not winter

what made me start writing?

Writing is something that has always come naturally to me. whether it's creative or to work through my feelings, writing was the first place I've always turned to. I've been writing about my emotions and comparing them to nature for as long as I can remember. I've written short stories, CNF, poetry, I've even self-published a collection of poetry and I'd love to publish another one.

what do I like to read?

Reading self-development books all the time can be a little overwhelming so I mainly read fiction books. My favourite author is Haruki Murakami and my favourite book is The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Fun fact: I love literally anything with preppy students committing genocide. Films, books, TV shows, I don't care, it's iconic to me.

what are my favourite self-care practices?

I. love. journalling. I think it's the best way to stay in tune with yourself and a really good habit to keep. I usually journal first thing in the morning so I can have a fresh mind before I start my day. Sometimes I like doing yoga but that's more if I'm in the mood, I try not to make strict routines for myself. I also love walking in nature, that always calms me down and gives me a fresh feeling.
